Vancouver Island Salmon Classic

This Is A $100,000.00 Salmon

This past weekend saw $150,000.00 of prize money given away during the Vancouver Island Salmon Classic held at the Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina.

This winning monster weighed in at 40.6 pounds, capturing the $100,000.00 prize. Second place went to the same team with another Shinook weighing in at 37.8 pounds. The winning team took home $150,000.00 which is some fish story.

Third place with a 37.2 pound slab earned the winning team a $25,000.00 prize.

The organizers website points out just how fantastic the salmon fishing still is on Vancouver Island:

"Vancouver Island is indisputably one of the best places in the world for salmon fishing. This 500km long Island offers countless hotspots for world class fishing. From great lodges, secret spots and talented fishing guides Vancouver Island is a treat for true anglers."
